Hitler Spotted at NH Hotel Party in 1946

301_Hitler_in_NH SeacoastNH.com Presents
Historic Portsmouth #301

This exclusive unretouched photograph shows what appears to be Adolph Hitler attending a party at Wentworth by the Sea at New Castle in 1946, a full year after the end of World War II. The despised dictator, presumed dead, seems to be holding hands with none other than his girlfriend Eva Braun. (Continued below)

Hitler can be seen just behind the Invisible Man and Mata Hari and to the left of two women dressed as gambling dice. This actual photo comes from Frank Graham who workred as a meatcutter at the Wentworth following the war. Frank told me he had no money for a costume, so he slicked back his hair, dabbed on a shoe-polish mustache and borrowed a pair of boots from the hotel stables. He was shocked to discover a woman dressed as Hitler’s main squeeze and they dance through the night. During the festivities he went onstage and sang "Hitler in the Snow" to the tune of "Turkey in the Straw". Frank graciously loaned the picture for my book about the history of the hotel. (Couresy Frank Graham)
